Center for Medical Weight Loss

Our program is a patient-centered, medically supervised weight management program that closely monitors and assesses progress towards better health and emotional well-being. The program utilizes Optifast, a full meal replacement plan that transitions to self-prepared "everyday" meals in conjunction with comprehensive patient education and support. The program is designed for adults and teens who are severely obese or have a body mass index higher than 35.

The program surrounds the patient with a team of health care professionals, including physicians, registered dietitians and lifestyle counselors to help patients achieve long-term weight loss. The goal is to provide patients with expert resources to address, modify and support lifestyle, behavior and diet decisions.

The well-documented weight loss success of the program is based on the use of meal replacements during the active weight loss phase of the program. The benefits include:

  • High quality, complete nutrition
  • Pre-portioned and calorie-controlled servings
  • Quick and simple preparation
  • Freedom from having to make food choices

If you are interested in our program, call us at (256) 265-3072 or talk to your health care provider to see if it is right for you.
